It’s a new year and I have to admit that I need to be stepping back onto the right path. I must admit this, because this new year, all the talk of resolutions and leaving the past behind have been somewhat lost on me. I want to do all those New Year Things. But as much as I’ve written about choosing your new path and staying on it, at the very of end of 2015, I stepped off of it. I found myself unable to stop looking back. Back to the pain of his infidelity. Back to the uncertainty of my current future because of what he did.And I’ve been sitting, languishing, in that puddle of mud. As much as I thought I wanted out of it, there is that part of me that still wonders: “Why did he do this to me? To us? How could he just walk away from the decades of life we shared together for so long?
I realized the best thing I could share with all of you Leftat50’s, was to come clean about these feelings, so that if any of you are feeling this way also, you would know you are not alone. That is the purpose of this site. Leftat50 is a place where we can share our feelings. All of them. This is a safe, supportive community where we all understand the pains we go through while we remake our lives. I want you all to know that you can reach out anytime. You are not alone . I will reach back.
Here’s to a happy, serene, successful, healing New Year. Stay the course if you can, and if you step off the way I did, get right back onto your New Path and keep going. That is where the tears stop. That is where the fears stop, and the future happiness begins. It is there waiting for all of us, if we just decide to keep going. We are strong and beautiful and bound for our amazing lives. It all begins with one step!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
